  5. 5. 5 Key Insights Around Gaming  Women who casually game do not see themselves as gamers (I'm not a gamer but...)  Women want games that are 'fit for purpose' (“They have to enhance my life in some way”)  There is a lot of guilt around playing games amongst female casual gaming (“Entertainment isn't enough of an attraction”)  Social & social aspect is key  A lot of women are intimidated by gaming and games per se
